Civil Rights Poems


Standing at the podium
the man who set us free is at my back and the reflecting pool is at my front.


When I stare into the reflecting pool.
I can see what our nation could become.
I can see police officers offering us a helping hand instead of using their hands to beat us


I can see firefighters extinguishing our house fires instead of watching our houses burn to the ground


This is not my dream but the dream of my people

More Civil Rights Poems

Walk Walk

Hatred spewing from the


mob that surrounds me


My face


May look like stone but I am afraid


I search
and search for a glint of hope


A smiling face


in the sea of anger


They threaten to hang me


But I remember


Do not let them see me cry.
